"Struck match, spiced oatmeal, grapefruit, lime, pineapple and nectarine, a little vanilla perfume. It’s glossy, cheese sticks, hazelnut and funky savoury flavour, sizzled butter, but a core of sizzling citrus acidity to go with it. Powerful. Texture is flinty and chalky, finish is tight, long and closes with slightly bitter green stalk, lime rind and grapefruit flavours lingering. It’ll become more mellifluous and composed as it ages, of course. Drink 2021-2030+"

Gary Walsh, Wine Front, May 2019

"A stellar year for chardonnay from an excellent growing season. Gold with a vivid green edge. Subtle aromatics of matchstick, white peach and nectarine combine with waxy lemon peel, wet stones and hazelnuts. A virtual cornucopia of salivating aromas and flavours. The palate has precision with ever present mineral notes that create a lip-smacking, tangy finish. This chardonnay has great tension and nerve – a wine for the purists!"
